            Small, compact, and light! Not as serious as it's bigger brothers but definitely has its place. Essential for mobile camera/film crews or personal work.

                These sandbags at 5 lbs are quite small and hold down light stands, background supports, or a tripod well when one needs sandbags but are carrying all ones portable gear into a location. These are too light to really make a difference with c-stands or heavier equipment. Love the saddlebag form and the handles.

                  Comments about Matthews Sandbag - 5 lb (Black):

                  I almost didn't order these. Went on a sandbag buying spree recently, and decided on two of these at the last minute. Now I wish I had ordered at least four more!

                  These little guys are perfect for adding a little more weight to an already weighted boom for example. Or hanging from a grip arm when just a few pounds are needed. They hang from two different straps. When squeezing them, it sounds crinkly, like Matthews was smart enough to put a plastic liner inside to keep the sand dry. Great build quality like you'd expect from MSE. These have turned out to be indispensable, and work well hanging in pairs. Hafta get some more soon.

                  Oh yeah: They drop-shipped from Matthews directly, which went smoothly. Thank B&H!

                    Comments about Matthews Sandbag - 5 lb (Black):

                    Rugged sandbag, that isn't too heavy to lug around in the field, especially working alone with a bunch of equipment. Yet, it is good for securing mic stands and tri-pods. Obviously, this is only a 5 pound bag and as such is not enough weight for safely securing lights or any heavy rigging.
